I was shopping at the weekend and noticed that several Doctor titles produced for the anniversary year have already hit the discount bookshops. I was surprised that it happened so soon – I had thought we might make it as far as 2014 before this happened.
I apologise now to anyone not in the UK though I suspect similar bargains may be had where you are. The books did retail at £7.99 and are now £1.99 each or three for £5. The set is the BBC books collection:
- Ten Little Aliens – Stephen Cole
- Dreams of Empire – Justin Richards
- Last of the Gadarene – Mark Gatiss
- Festival of Death – Jonathan Morris
- Fear of the Dark – Trevor Baxendale
- Players – Terrance Dicks
- Remembrance of the Daleks – Ben Aaronovitch
- Earthworld – Jacqueline Rayner
- Only Human – Gareth Roberts
- Beautiful Chaos – Gary Russell
- The Silent Stars Go By – Dan Abnett
The best Amazon can currently do on these is around £5.75 or £3.99 on Kindle though I expect those prices to drop. These are decent books – I’ve read Remembrance and also Silent Stars Go By.
This may be a bit sad but with Christmas coming I will be adding several of these to my wish list / Christmas sales targets. I suggest you do the same.
Are these of any interest? What bargains have you seen? Do, please, let me know…
